ANDREW LESSMAN’S MARINE COLLAGEN PEPTIDES with MSM provides a unique source of highly soluble and absorbable Collagen Peptides, selected for their ability to deliver benefits to the vital Collagen structure of our Skin, Hair and Nails, as well as our Joints, Bones and Blood Vessels. To further enhance and promote protein synthesis in these critical tissues, we also include 500 mg of Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM), an exceptional source of highly bioavailable organic Sulfur. Our Marine Collagen Peptides mixes easily with water and is flavor-neutral, while also free of carbohydrate, sugar, lactose, fat, cholesterol and sodium. It is non-GMO (Not Genetically Modified) and contains no added flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. Collagen is the primary structural protein in the body, comprising almost one third of the body’s entire protein mass. The healthy structure and function of our skin, bones, blood vessels and connective tissues are built upon a foundation of Collagen Protein. The healthy appearance of our skin is dependent upon the integrating structure provided by Collagen Protein, which is why it is so often deceptively used in so many topical beauty products. Unfortunately, slathering Collagen Protein on the outside of our body does absolutely nothing for the internal collagen structure. The only way that Collagen Peptides can affect the structure of the skin is to deliver them where they can be utilized – inside our body. That is the basis for the uniquely soluble and absorbable Marine Collagen Peptides in this formula. It is an unfortunate fact of life that, as we age, our skin loses its youthful flexibility and resilience. This loss of tone and elasticity results from, among other things, changes in the skin’s integrating Collagen structure. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
